Australian health care system better than US

Sanders, the Vermont independent who sought the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, tweeted in response Friday: "Yes, Mr. Trump, the Australian health care system is a lot better than ours and infinitely better than the disastrous bill you supported".

President Donald Trump has praised Australia's single-payer health care system, describing it as superior to the US model.

Trump said the American Health Care Act passed by the House on Thursday "is a very good bill right now".

Known as the American Healthcare Act, the bill has yet to receive a price tag from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office and is opposed by a number of physician and health care groups, including the American Medical Association, amid concerns it could strip millions of Americans of their coverage, including those with pre-existing medical conditions.

Trump and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull are meeting aboard a decommissioned World War II aircraft carrier docked in NY to mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea.

"We have a failing health care", said Trump. "President Trump praised the Australian health care system. and the president is right", the video states.

The president himself said in a tweet on Saturday that "everybody" has better healthcare than the US.

Last night, the American president, after meeting with Turnbull in person, said the media's characterization of the testy phone call in January was wrong.

In a meeting with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, Trump praised the nation's healthcare system. House Republicans cheered yesterday as they secured the 217-213 victory.

For example, just before his inauguration, Trump told the Washington Post that his goal is "insurance for everybody" - ironically, exactly what Obamacare tried to move the country closer toward. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., swiftly pointed out that the Australian health care model provides publicly funded health care with private sector options.

Australia's government provides nationalized health care, and the country spends about half as much as the USA does to provide it.

He said they discussed the future of the two countries from the perspective of national security and trade to immigration and enhanced economic cooperation.

Trump vowed to visit Australia as president, calling it "one of the great, great places" and noted he had many friends there. "No, we had actually a very nice call". "I'll be sure to quote you on the floor of the Senate", he wrote on Twitter.

The World War II fight against Japanese forces forged an alliance that has seen Australia pitch in alongside the United States in every major conflict since. "Maybe he wants to take a look at the Canadian healthcare system or systems throughout Europe".
